jthm-fandom said: Out of all the planets you've been sneaking around to recently, this one definitely has the best pizza. The consorts are creepy as all fuck, but since when did creepy stuff dissuade you. They act nice enough, after all, so at least you don't have to passive-aggressively roll your eyes at them. Leaning back in your seat, you pop on your headphones and crank the music up loud enough to sufficiently drown out the other guests. Yup, this is definitely a good day.
You rarely go out to your pizza places, but you’re running low on grist from alchemizing extra parts of yourself just in case something bad happens. But on your imp-fighting mini-quest, you spot a non-animatronic in one of the pizza places on your planet.
Screeching as you accidentally bump into an animatronic consort, you dash into the restaurant and hide behind the door. They’re nice enough, but TOO nice… Like the toys from the It’s A Small World but at night with distorted voiceboxes.
In any case, you approach the man at the table, slow and careful, but curious, and tap him lightly on the shoulder.
Er… Excuse me? A-are you aware of where you are?
Ah! Ơ̻̳͓F͓ course I’ll listen to your problems. I highly doubt they’re ‘stupid’, per say, but I’ll certainly lend you an ear. F̧̗̰EE̳͚͍̰̙͈̕L͎̥͉ F̧̣̦̩̜̹R̯͓E̬͎̰͓̩͠E̲̭̥͝ to speak F̡̱̥͎̻̩Ŕ̰̟E̜͚͖̠͉̙̫E͎͞L͞Y, my F̶̪R̯͙̯̟̰̺̻͡I̪͉͎̬͖̙̣Ȩ̯̫͉̗̺ͅN̘͔͈͔̩͜ͅD͓̩̤̩̳̲͡.
You sigh deeply, steeling yourself.
For the longest time now, I’ve… I’ve had this huge, stupid crush on someone… And we’re good friends, so I don’t want to ruin anything, but I feel like I’m about to explode with all the stuff I haven’t told him, but if I confess to him, what’s gonna happen? Where’s it gonna go from there? I know he won’t reciprocate… Hell, I wouldn’t reciprocate the feelings of a guy like me. I’m pale enough to double as a white wall and so scrawny, I look like a veteran from the skeleton war, I mean, come on. There’s no way on earth he could ever… Y’know…
Your voice tapers off at the end and you shuffle uncomfortably on the spot, rubbing your one arm and not meeting Freddy’s gaze. He’s a saint for listening to you, and it feels good to finally get it out… But you know it won’t be the same with Meatboy.
